The Redskins like their linebackers.
The team announced on Thursday the signing of free agent Austin Spitler to a Reserve/Future contract.
An Ohio State product, Spitler was drafted by the Dolphins in 2010 and spent four years in Miami, recording 31 tackles there, mostly on special teams.
He signed with the Ravens in 2014 but was released during final cuts.
He had a solid career as a Buckeye and in 2009 and was expected to take over for James Laurinaitis but was moved to the strong side to fill a hole on the defense. He played behind Laurinaitis every year after redshirting in 2005.
Here’s a video from his time with the Dolphins getting interviewed about his first experiences playing in the NFL.
